Deborah

The name of a biblical prophetess and judge of the Israelites who wrote the "Song of Deborah" in celebration of the Israelites victory over the Canaanites. It became popular with 17th century Puritans because the bee was a symbol of industriousness. It was influenced by British film actress Deborah Kerr during the late 1940s, 1950s, and 1960s which led to the name's top 25 ranking during that time. It's frequently used by Jewish families. The alternate spelling, "Debra," came along during the 1930s. Honey Bee
